Two. Deux. Zwei.
Whatever language you listen to music in, we know you prefer it as intererfence free as possible. You need the Gemini3.0 dual-headed cable.
In most mass-produced USB cables, the signal and power cables are normally compacted together. This means two things – poor conductivity and they are not protected from one another.
This leads to interference and degrades quality.
Degrees of separation
The Gemini3.0 cable carries the audio signal and power in two separate cables.
This separates the delicate USB data signal from the USB power.
No interference and sound quality remains unaffected.
Superior design. Better signal. Strong shielding.
We strictly adhere to the usb.org specifications. A key factor that is often overlooked is sticking to the 90 ohms impedance. This is achieved using the following exhaustive methods.
We use heavy OFHC continuous copper silver matrix conductors for the best possible signal transfer. The cable construction is a custom minimum inductance parallel type with dual shielding. This protects the cable from RFI and EMI noise and provides the cleanest transfer medium possible.
With the machined FINAL connectors and atypical RF3 filter designs, the iFi Gemini3.0 sets a whole new sonic benchmark for computer audio transmission.
The golden touch
The signal runs through the cable and the connector. This means the connector too must be exceptional.
Most USB cables use moulded plastic covered connections that do not shield the high frequencies present in the USB data link. Noise radiates out. Very few make their own connectors and rely on off-the-shelf components. These often lack durability.
Our FINAL USB connectors provide impeccable end-to-end RF shielding. They are machined entirely from solid, aircraft-grade aluminium. Plus their gold-plated connections make for years of steadfast service.
Two heads are better than one.
The power cable is heavier gauge than often found in standard USB cables. And signal and ground have their own respective geometry for optimal conductivity.
There are dual-headed designs and then there is the Gemini3.0 dual headed design. Nothing comes close.
The USB protocol is outlined in a technical paper on the usb.org website.
We have pored over this paper to ensure that we have closely followed the tight tolerances/specifications. For example, a major specification is adhering to 90ohms impedance.
All iFi cables have been designed with this in mind.
Radio-frequency interference (RFI) is very similar to electromagnetic interference (EMI) but is found in the radio frequency spectrum. It is another source of irritatiing, unwanted noise often talked about as an ‘audio gremlin’.
Top tip: just don’t add water.
EMI is a type of interference caused by errant and unwanted electromagnetic waves that are received and amplified by an audio system. They cause some of the annoying ‘audio gremlins’ we often talk about.
